Which still would be awesome! But after going through the event orientation, it became abundantly clear that my journey would be much more interactive.

These are people who aren’t pilots, but I’d throw them in the back of an F-16, and light the afterburner. and set fire to their hair.” He added, “They always came back with a smile from ear to ear saying it was the most amazing thing I’ve done in my life.” I can confirm that Cole and his colleagues replicate this experience and reaction with the flights offered at Sky Combat Ace.
